August 2009 issue

That's something of a simplification, in truth, so to find out what this amazing device is really capable of, check out the full review in this month's First Tests section. We'll be bringing you a video review of the NaimUniti here on whathifi.com later this month.

You also have the chance to win a superb, five-star Cyrus CD 8 SE CD player and matching PSX-R power supply, worth £1700, in our fabulous August competition.

Hi-fi reviews galore
That's not all, of course. We have a smorgasbord of other hot hi-fi reviews, including a close look at (and listen to) Cambridge Audio's much-anticipated new budget hi-fi range, in the shape of the Azur 650A stereo amp and Azur 650C CD player. Can they live up to the reputation set by their predecessors?

Hi-fi afiicianados are further catered for with a Group Test of £450-£540 stereo speakers from the likes of Dali, Dynaudio, EB Acoustics, Epos, Klipsch and Mordaunt-Short.

And our Temptation section is packed with more heavenly hi-fi: new Pathos Adrenalin monoblocs, Plinius's Hiato integrated amplifier and Moon's CD3.3 CD player.

Oh, and did we mention our four-page feature on the future of hi-fi?

On the TV front, we've tested Panasonic's flagship wireless TX-P46Z1, plus the Panasonic TX-L32V10 and Sony KDL-40S5500, but most intriguingly of all the super-widescreen Philips Cinema 21:9 (56PFL9954H). This extraordinary TV breaks all the rules, as you'll discover.

50-52in TV Supertest
This month's TV Supertest is a must-read, too, with brand-new 50-52in models from LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba going head-to-head.

And if you're in the market for an all-in-one Blu-ray system to go with your new telly or projector, we've tested three such set-ups from LG, Panasonic and Samsung.

Those more inclined to go the separates route for their home cinema system can check out our exclusive tests of Yamaha's budget RX-V365 AV receiver and B&W's MT-25 style speaker package.

Portable entertainment
Or maybe you want your home entertainment to be more compact? We can help there too, with a Roundup of portable, battery-powered iPod docks, plus our verdict on Yamaha's wireless PDX-50 and Geneva Labs' Model L iPod systems.

We also pit the Apple iPod Touch against Sony's new X-Series Walkman, and take a closer look at the new Apple iPhone 3G S and Sony PSP Go in our News section.

All this and more is in the bumper August 2009 issue of What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision, on sale today, July 1st. And don't forget to check out our video reviews and podcasts on whathifi.com.
